Under The Sea

“We are tied to the ocean, and when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back to whence we came”

John F Kennedy

The Ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.

Robert Wyland

We can experience the benefits of the water whether they’re near the ocean or viewing one of our images that we created of the ocean and of the life under the sea. As humans we are drawn to “blue space”, the sky and the ocean. The benefits of viewing the undersea lowers emotional stress and  lowers anxiety.

Photographs of the aquatic life under the sea are especially attractive to children and are a powerful tool when displayed in children’s hospitals. These photographs, when installed in procedural areas, lowers the stress and anxiety that children experience. Photographs of nature have been proven to calm us and the undersea life does not disappoint. What is the ocean, if not a poetic symbol in our lives, a way of resonating with the deepest levels of nature itself?
